Story

Lead singer of Expose' Gioia Bruno is like family to me. We are quite close. She has already helped my career hugely with helpful advice. I had to record this one. It is a surprise to her that I it will be on a future album. I actually did pull it. The reason was, I recorded this one again, and again, and again never got it just right. Until now! Here is the new re-worked version with the same vocal. I think this was the hardest of all the tracks. I wanted to go for notes I don't have. Then I heard Expose's (Gioia's) new take on the song from 2012. I thought ok, I can do a cross between the two. I loved the emotion this song has. Though It was only a #2 Billboard Dance Club hit and #7 on Billboard singles chart in 1987. I wanted to do a Gioia Bruno song from Expose'. The real reason to, out of all the Expose' songs I love, I Love, Love, LOVE this one most! The beat box at the beginning. I also overall was not to satisfied with my vocals and dropped this one off the album a couple times. After much playing with Mixing/Mastering. Then end result its acceptable. Might not be the breakout track I wanted but it's ok!
